Exclamation Help me choose

My parents still owe me an birthday present and with Christmas coming i will combine the two and maybe add some off my own money to get me a new hookah! imported, something you wont find in South Africa! Seeing as this will be my ultimate hookah and i only get this opportunity once i need to choose carefully!

PLEASE help me choose by posting what you think i might like with a picture if you can please.

The hookah will be the centerpiece of my living room in my new flat next year so:

it needs to be big: you know 36'' or more(it needs to be intimidating so when people enter they know they have entered the local hookahking's domain)

Stylish:like a KM or something that looks like a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.

No modern looks: i dont like the modern looks, something more traditional or cultural.

Hoses: it can be a one hose hookah but then it needs to be convertible because i will smoke a lot with friends.

Rotator?: i prefer not except if it is something else. Most rotators just look the same to me and as you can think by now I want something different that will stand out.

It must really just looks nice with detailed craftsmanship. It will also be nice if it can have those nice things like difuser and those ball valves inside the hose connector so that your pipes airway is only open when you pull (thats high tech stuff for us OK) and nice things like that. If you have more questions maybe ask away but

PLEASE HELP ME!

i must rely on you people who has experience with these hookahs and can tell me a lot more that what i can research.

Thanks a lot in advance

If you're looking for a hookah that when people enter your house they know they're at the local hookahking's domain, than you should take a peek at the Fourty-Eight inch tall MZ Nefertiti. It even comes with handlebars mid-stem. :O

OK, the convertable thing runs you out of any option we throw at you. Your gonna have to throw that option out (the 2 hose thing) if you want any of our opinions to fully mean anything.

Making an egyptian a 2 hose is like making putting a bunch of lead weights in the back of a BMW. Don't do it, just share the hose. You want the cultural aspect of the hookah, so you will need to keep it 1 hose.

If you still want convertable you can buy a piece that does that but it makes the pull TERRIBLE on one side. Also, this piece doesn't fit on KM hookahs.

All in all, I would recommend a Syrian.

Thanks a LOT

Zensilk I am so glad you said that because i asked around because i wondered how the pull will be on the second pipe seeing as the hole is much smaller but most people told me you cant tell the difference. Now that i know that:

Scratch the part of not being a single hose it can be any single hose hookah that you can recommend.

Divine do you have one of those? i saw a video review of that one on youtube and they said it was great. Do you maybe have more info for me on it? It seems that the best info can only be found at fellow hookaholics...

Anybody else has any suggestions please?

Yeah go with one of those Hendre, you'll love it. You should act quick though, because they'll sell fast. (talking about the Khalil's, not the 48" MZ)

yeah forget the MZ:. it has good draw and all jsut like KM but imagine cleaning that 48" or even moving it around and it might also have a negative effect on the draw since its so big ( unconfirmed )

RussianOG has a Mya Obelisk/Pyramid.
Personally, I would get a KM from CH. The hose that it comes with is already a good hose, and you could also pick up a phunnel too.
